Manchester United 9 – 0 Ipswich (1995)
First on our list of the biggest premier league wins is the match between Ipswich and Manchester United from March 1995, which produced an incredible outcome. And not just because the Red Devils produced what’s known to date as one of the biggest wins in the premier league’s history, but also because Ipswich had defeated Man United 3 – 2 earlier the same season.
Manchester United went further to finish second, just one point behind Blackburn Rovers who won the league, whilst Ipswich ended up being relegated. The goal scorers were Cole (5x), Hughes (2x), Ince, and Keane.
Tottenham 9 – 1 Wigan (2009)
One of the greatest winnings in the premier league happened in 2009 after Tottenham Spurs crushed Wigan. This was a very important win for Spurs because it earned them a 4th place finish in the league, which sent them to the Europa League. The man of the match was Defoe who scored five times. Other goal scorers were Kranjcar, Bentley, Lennon, Crouch, and Paul Scharner for Wigan.
Chelsea 8 – 0 Wigan (2010)
This was a must-win game for Chelsea, who had to win in order to secure their first premier league title since 2006. It wasn’t surprising that the Blues took the job very seriously. Wigan didn’t stand a chance against a side that was well prepared with superstar players.
Although Wigan came into this match as the underdogs, they had to endure an embarrassing 90 minutes, where they got outclassed by Chelsea, who went further to win 8 – 0 to win their fourth premier league title. On that night the goal scorers were Anelka (2x), Drogba (3x), Frank Lampard, Salomon Kalou, and Ashley Cole.
Southampton 8 – 0 Sunderland (2014)
Southampton found their way into our list of the biggest wins in the premier league, but this time it was Southampton’s day to shine. Luckily for them, Southampton found themselves on the right side of the stick.
However, it was a match that also saw some of the most spectacular own goals by Santiago Vergini, who had also scored the opening goal. Aanholt and Birdcut also scored own goals. Besides the above-mentioned three, other scores on that fateful night were Pelle (2x), Wanyama, Tadic, and Cork.
Manchester City 8 – 0 Watford (2019)
One of the most recent additions to our handpicked list of top biggest wins in EPL is when Manchester City beat Watford 8 – 0. The match was without a doubt one-sided, and even though City was the favorites, no one imagined they would win with such a big margin.
The ‘Citizens’ didn’t appear to take any prisoners and although they didn’t need to win with such a huge margin, they needed the morale boost following the humiliating 2 – 3 defeat by Norwich in the previous match. On that day, goals were scored by Silva (4x), De Bruyne, Otamendi, Mahrez, and Aguero.
Southampton 0 – 9 Leicester City (2019)
We near the end of our list with the match between Southampton and Leicester City from 2019, which produced an incredible result. After Bertrand was given red card early into the game, everyone knew this won’t be an easy game for Southampton, but we didn’t expect Leicester to win with such a margin. The day’s goal scorers were Vardy (3x), Perez (3x), Madison, Tielemans, and Chilwell.
Manchester United 9 – 0 Southampton (2021)
We will conclude our comprehensive list of the highest wins in EPL with the most recent match between Manchester United vs. Southampton from February 2021.
